More Reasons To Be Cheerful!

Posted on 18 August 2017

We’ve got a whole lot of punk rock ‘n’ roll coming to the Belgrade this September, as Reasons To Be Cheerful comes to us on Friday 8 and Saturday 9 September. A raucous musical celebrating the music of Ian Drury and The Blockheads, this punk rock musical and gritty coming of age tale, will leave audiences begging for more.

Featuring Ian Dury and The Blockheads’ greatest hits including Sex and Drugs and Rock and Roll, Sweet Gene Vincent, Spasticus Autisticus and Hit Me With Your Rhythm Stick this acclaimed show is rowdy and ready to go!

It’s 1979: Labour loses to the Tories, strikes rock the nation and Ian Dury and The Blockheads’ Reasons to be Cheerful (Part 3) climbs the charts. As the ultimate fans, Vinnie and his mates would do anything to see Dury at the Hammersmith Odeon, only the gig is sold out. But life has a habit of throwing strange things at you, and one night of frustration becomes something else entirely…

With all performances including captioned dialogue, BSL-interpreted songs and audio description, this show opens up the great music of Ian Drury to everyone and it’s sure to be a fantastically raucous night out. Get a sneak peak of the show in the trailer below!
